Reacting moments after the game, Galaticos boss Julen Lopetegui stressed it was a precautionary move, saying: "Bale had discomfort in his abductor at half-time and as a precaution he didn't come out for the second half", the former La Roja manger, was quoted as saying.

Real Madrid entered the match at Sevilla with a chance to take sole possession of first place for the first time this season, but it didn't take long before it found itself in a deep hole.

Real have now failed to beat Atletico at home in the league in their last six attempts, with their last victory coming in December 2012 when Jose Mourinho was in charge.

In contrast, Atletico started the season slowly with five points in the opening four games.

Real Madrid will next face Simeone's Atletico Madrid as both sides aim to climb the point table. "It is the best thing that can happen to us".

Atletico's season began with high expectations after winning the Europa League and finishing second in the league. "The match was intense", added Atletico manager Diego Simeone.

Seahawks unfazed by Earl Thomas' one-finger salute
The 29-year-old was playing the 2018 season under the final year of his contract, which has a cap hit of $10.4 million. Earl Thomas' career as a Seattle Seahawk is probably over-and it did not have a happy ending.


"On Saturday there is no favourite, the only thing we can know for sure is that it will be a lovely game".

Aiming for a fourth consecutive UCL trophy, Madrid eased to a 3-0 victory over last year's semifinalists Roma in the first group game played since the competition's record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo left last summer. Just like in 2016-17, Alaves also roped in eight loan players but that wasn't enough to build on the success of their previous campaign.

Real and Atletico began a pulsating derby less than three hours after Barca's draw at home to Bilbao, but goalkeepers reigned supreme in the capital to ensure the grudge match finished goalless.

Marcelo is one of the top players set to miss Saturday's derby because of injury.

The good news is that Dani Carvajal has recovered from a muscle problem and will be able to return after missing the last two matches, although Isco will be out for another three weeks after his appendix operation.

Lopetegui, who was sacked as boss of Spain on the eve of the World Cup in Russian Federation, will also be without Isco (appendicitis) and Marcelo (calf).
